A good portion of us here are comic fans, some of us go so far as to even be comic nerds.
Some of us know how to think outside the box. We have all had that moment when reading a comic where we said "Why did "X" not just do ..." or "If "X" was not an idiot he would be a beast"
So I decided to put some things together to see what the best of the minds her can come up with.
This is for both HEROES and VILLAINS.
What hero or villain could accomplish the most but is wasted because they use their power wrong, are an idiot, or simply do not know what they are doing.
Absorbing Man - If he had a scientific mind, and some better strategic thinking he would be a monster. I would just keep a ring of various metals on at all times. A vibranium ring, an adamantium ring, an urn ring, as well as one that has a sealed piece of the most highly radioactive substance I can get. I would just carry samples of things I would need on me.
Electro - Really, you have masterly of that level of electricity and you can beat Spiderman most of the time. If I had those powers I would own just about anyone. The brain works by electric impulses, it would not be that hard to shut down a brain or just plain puppet someone by electrically stimulating the muscles or neurons.
Graviton - Sorry but you better be able to fly if you plan to mess with someone like that. The first thing I would do would be to throw you off the planet or open a singularity in your brain if I just felt like killing you. Proof you can be book smart but not a great tactician.
